By Jennifer Sun
Genre: Literary fiction
Two lives converge over a high stake international deal between U.S. and China – Will Donovan, a successful cyber technology business owner and Lu Li, a Wall Street investment banker. From New York City to Washington, DC, to Shanghai, together they have to face ethical dilemmas, make life choices, and come to terms with their past.
East meets West, past clashes with present. Blending romantic suspense with ethical intrigue. TWO TALES OF THE MOON is a compelling story that reveals that human struggle is the same regardless one’s past or cultural upbringing.
Clarion/Forward gave the book a four star rating, calls it “a thoughtful portrait of a modern woman who must choose between the burden of memory and a future of her own making…the writing takes on the sharpened focus of a play… the work effectively captures the effects of communism in searingly personal ways.
A very unique read. Lu Li works in finance on Wall Street. She has a riviting, fightful past and it is about to collide with her future.
Learning about communist China and Lu Li’s experiences is fascinating. This part of the book keeps you on the edge of your seat. I really wish there had been more about this in the book and less about finance (I am a science nerd).
Lu Li is a strong, delightful woman. She has to be to overcome her many obstacles and experiences.
